Seeing lots of Ponchos for Fall 2014 in Milan!
Examples here at Emilio Pucci and Salvatore Ferragamo.
What: An oversize piece of fabric with a hole in the center for the head, frequently fringed and worn as an outer garment.
Why: Perhaps comes from poncho, a word used by the Araucanians of central Chile and neighboring Argentina meaning “woolen cloth.” In the 19th century, a poncho might have been worn—by gauchos of African, indigenous, and Spanish heritage who roamed Argentina and northern South America—not only for warmth, but also used as a bed, pillow, even a card table
EPAULETS at Versace Fall 2014
What: An ornamental shoulder trim initially used for military uniforms, consisting of a braid looped to form fringe around the edge.
Why: From epauliere armor, which consisted of a single shoulder plate and was first worn around 1300.
This style was originally designed to help keep shoulder belts—which in those times were used to carry swords (in a way quite similar to hoisting a modern-day yoga bag)—from slipping off the shoulder.
